3 Things You Do That Can Cause Hepatitis B

Chronic hepatitis B infection is caused by a viral infection that damages the liver and can result in both acute and chronic diseases. 

Hepatitis B is an infection that poses a serious threat to one's health and even one's life. It is a viral infection of the liver that is brought on by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). It is a public health issue that affects people all over the world. It can result in chronic infection and put people at a higher risk of dying from cirrhosis and liver cancer than they would otherwise be. 

Known as hepatitis B, this chronic liver infection manifests itself in the form of a rash (swelling and reddening) and can cause liver damage. 

The following are some of the symptoms of hepatitis B:

• Abdominal discomfort 

Urine that is dark in color. 

• Fever. Fever is a fever that occurs when the body is overheated. 

• Joint discomfort. 

• Appetite loss is a common occurrence. 

• Nausea and vomiting are common. 

• Feelings of weakness and fatigue 

You will notice a yellowing of your skin and the whites of your eyes. 

Some of the things you do that cause you to contract hepatitis B are as follows: 

1. Having unprotected sexual contact with an infected individual 

The virus that causes hepatitis B can be transmitted through unprotected sexual contact, such as vaginal, anal, and oral sex, as well as through other sexual activities with a person who has been infected with hepatitis B, even if they are not experiencing symptoms. 

2. Using a sharp object with someone else 

Sharp objects such as syringes, scalpels, and razors should only be used with extreme caution. Once a needle has been inserted by an infected person, viruses in their blood, such as hepatitis B, may contaminate the needle. Sharps containers can become contaminated with blood as well. 

3. An excessive amount of sugar consumption 

In order to maintain a healthy liver, excessive sugar consumption should be avoided. It is possible that foods with a high sugar content will be difficult for the liver to digest if the body is being attacked by the Hepatitis virus. 

Make sure to avoid these three things if you want to avoid contracting the hepatitis B virus.
